Just an update...

Somehow, my Aura Blue s20+ from Monmart suddenly showing the option to change 5G/LTE/3G.

All is good now ^^
Samsung servers check on the CSC code of your Samsung device and match it with the geolocation where itís being used. If both these things match before sending OTA updates to your device. Suppose the CSC code of your Samsung device is INS (India) and you take it to the United Kingdom or Germany and use it there, you may not receive the official software updates from Samsung.

Reference :https://www.droidviews.com/how-to-ch...galaxy-phones/

How in the blaze that your US set can so easily get the update? lol. do you mind to share with some of your device information :

1. Model Number
2. Baseband Versiion
3. Service provider SW ver

This information will help me to narrow down what is the special thing that you have. hahaha

Hi, am thinking of changing to s20. But do not know the diff between ultra and plus. What's the difference? I'm using Huawei p30 pro at the moment. In terms of function, android should be roughly the same right?
Haha! I'm in the same situation and a p30 pro user as well.

I can only share that i'm on Singtel and my model is SM-G986U1. It's Samsung unlocked set which is not from any of the US Telco. The geeks from android central said that my set from Samsung will always be the first to receive updates compared to the telco's set.

Previously when i got this phone, 5G/LTE/3G not showing up. Today just browsing through and saw that this option appeared out of no where suddenly.

Just checking, where and how to get a s20+ SD that’s is unlocked and not tied to any telco?
Interested in getting one of the price is okay. Haha
Saw many ppl having issues with USA sets from telco have update issue.
Literally only one guy which is having this "issue" in particular.

Thanks Itrinityl, that's more than enough information. actually it's quite safe for you to share because those are just software information, there's no device or personal unique information.

After 2 sleepless night reading across all forum, U1 are indeed the "Unbranded" US version, so there's no carrier bloatware and the update will be OTA.

You are right, I managed to find a forum to update my version from U to U1. I will try it this weekend and see what it will do to my phone.

Managed to really use and push my SD s20+ TW set dual sim 12gb ram hard today, 100% charged at 12pm and by 12am battery life at 25%. With 3hour SOT on 120hz

Social media, WhatsApp, telegram, wechat and line msging. With close to 30 mins of talk time.
Took some pictures and video, editing videos on the phone too.

While taking the video, phone started to really heat up, the auto focus on the wide angle is quite bad had to retake a few times.

Ps I did not debloat.
